  1. I'm new to bass fishing but I do a lot of inshore saltwater fishing and the only knots I've ever seen and used are the clinch knot, palomar knot, and snell. The clinch knot is super easy to tie and it's never failed me, not even with 35+ inch red drum.

  2. You'll go through about five bags f worms per day if you use a wacky rig that way, and Senko worms are dreadfully expensive.  You can use rings intended for wacky rigging, or you can use braided line tied around the worm, or any one of half a dozen other things, but if you just run the hook through the naked worm, you're going to lose a worm with pretty much every nibble.

  3. The Palomar is stronger, or at least it measures so, and far, far easier to tie.  I suspect it's the only know so easy to tie that it can be tied in the dark.

    The Uni, or Double Uni, is best for joining line, but it isn't something I'd ever tie for hooks or lures, and certainly not something I'd recommend for a beginner.

  4. Jeff – thanks again for your awesome video series. I bagged my first bass today, and it was by doing exactly what you shared in this video series. Thank you for taking the time to do this series!

  5. Great vid. Maybe also include texas rigging with an offset worm hook as well as the ewg hook you showed.

  6. You make clear, concise videos. Thank you. It seems like a Texas Rig, esp. with the hook tip buried in the plastic, wouldn't actually hook the fish, but rather just get pulled out of it's mouth. How does that work?.

  7. Thanks so much I'm glad I came across your channel thanks to you I learned so much so please keep making more video's…

  8. First, I would like to say awesome videos, I have watch all six videos and patiently waiting for the rest. I grew up fishing but I'm fairly new at bass fishing. I started last year looking into it and only caught one so far and I think that was luck! But I think your videos are helping me improve my skills, thanks again…

  9. I'm a 59 year old beginner bass fisherman. I have watched several vids and read many books and articles on bass fishing. I have to say your series is head and shoulders better than anything I have experienced. You have the knowledge and the talent to present the info in a way that anyone could understand. I can't wait for the remainder of the series. Thanks

  10. Best knots r the Palomar cause it has double line going thru the eye which makes it stronger but the other best knot is the San Diego jam knot, it tightens on itself the harder the fish pulls the tighter the knot becomes.

  12. is it okay to use a lighter to cut the line? it melts the line and leaves a hard ball larger than the original line on the tag end to help hold the knot
